That was the price before trade-in. I traded in a 2001 Saab 9-5 wagon and they gave me $2,000 for it. Not a great price, but given the market for Saab's these days, especially an 8 year-old station wagon...that's about what I expected, actually. I also bought an extended warranty from Honda Village, after shopping around for warranties. I brought in an e-mail offer from Bernardi Honda -- $785 for 72 months/80,000 miles -- and Honda Village matched it. My salesman was Vartan; don't know his last name.

No wheellocks/mudflaps, no navi. Just the standard EXL package. I worked with Vartan at Honda Village. See my reply to the other person who commented on my post.

Well, my username is misleading....I was on the title (along with my father) and what not for my first vehicle, so it is reported on my credit report as being paid on time and in full. When I moved, the title was signed over to my name only. I also have a credit history of paying all credit card and student loan payments on time for 3+ years, so I'm hoping that should qualify me since my credit score is above 720.
This will be my first time buying a vehicle completely on my own (I'm 26), so I've been doing my research and was curious about where the cut offs might be for that 2.9% financing. Thanks for the info!

Yeah, I understand the need to make profit.
That must explain why we, the car buyers, have to sit through briefings about rust-proofing, extended warranties, paint protection, Lo-Jack, Window etching, Nuclear Armageddon protection, and the like.
Sorry, but you guys have no shame, when it comes to raping a buyer out of every dollar you can get away with.
Between "Destination/Delivery", Holdback, and monies paid over "Invoice" the dealer still makes out quite well.

Please don't lump uis in the same catagory.
We make nothing off destination charges. We pay these and pass them on just like any business does.
Just consider the tremendous overhead and costs of doing business.
I am glad you realize a business has to make a profit to stay in business.

Online quote from KY dealer below. Car is not in stock, they would have to bring it in.
$21,264 base incl. dest.
$1202 tax (6%, but math doesn't work)
grand total $22,855
Seems a bit rich, especially for year end. Thoughts?

Yes that is too much. You can get a 2010 LX 4WD for less than that nowadays. ($21.5K easily, including doc). You should try to get at least $1K less for the 2WD.

Thanks for the response. I have a competing quote:
$20,550 base (including destination)
$1201 tax (6%)
$395 document / license
Out the door at $22,146 including tax. What have other buyers seen recently?

Did they know about the trade-in prior to offering you that price? Would they have honored that price without the trade-in? I have not been able to get under $26110 (including destination charge). I'm wondering if they were willing to offer a lower price knowing that they were going to make some money back on your trade-in. If they were willing to offer that price out the door without trade-in, then that is a great price. This is the best offer I have found so far:
2010 EX-L AWD
$26110 (including the destination charge)
$160 Govt Fees
$150 Doc Fees
$2270 Sales Tax
$28690 Out the door
What does everyone think? Good deal?
